It's My Mama's Birthday Y'all!
Y'all please join me in wishing my Mama 'Miss Pauline' a Happy Birthday! She's 88 years old today!!! Here's a recent photo of Mama...Martha Pauline Clifton Sessums--born and raised and lived her whole life in Georgia. Mama is the epitome of a Southern Lady. She loves the Lord. She loves her family. And...like all other Southern ladies, she loves to shop and entertain. Now, when Mama was younger, she never spoke of her age. Even her relatives had no idea of her exact age:-) Not the case now! Every year it's "You know I'll soon be 85, 86, 87", et cetera. She lets us all know she is now the Matriarch of her family. Bless her heart, even today, she still thinks of others first...delivering her homemade cakes and pies to friends, neighbors, and relatives; shopping for bridal and baby gifts, and so forth. Mama taught me that...Do a little something everyday to make someone happy! If you are a long-time reader of my blog, you know that something else Mama taught me was to "Never show up empty-handed at someone's door!" It's all these little things that Mama taught me that I'll be remembering today..."Things Mama Says." If you follow me on Twitter, you can read all about them! Thank you for visiting with me today!
